Its Good Looks and Carefree Maintenance Will Have You Signing Up for the Autograph Tree

The dark green leathery leaves of the Pitch Apple are so tough, they can be carved into –hence the derivation of the name “Autograph Tree.” Bet you were also wondering why the name “Pitch Apple?” The tree’s seeds are surrounded by black material once used to caulk the seams of boats.

This perennial evergreen can be used as a wide shrub, or as a medium sized tree. It can grow to 25 ft. tall and beyond. In Summer, you’ll enjoy its pink or white blooms framed by its fat, paddle shaped leaves. It also has small green fruits that ripen to black, then split open to reveal the bright red seeds that birds adore. The Pitch Apple prefers full sun (but can tolerate partial shade), and well drained soil. Its hardy and salt-tolerant – ideal for a seaside home.

hi! Would this plant work as an indoor plant with medium indirect light? We are located in New York. Our planter is approx. 17″ diameter, so plenty of space for a large plant.

thank you!!

It works as an indoor plant but you’ll have to play with the light. If it’s not enough light you’ll see more leaf loss than normal.
